The second season of Demon Slayer entered in May this year with a gripping and action-packed finale. It’s no wonder that the fans wanted more of this series.

What will Demon Slayer Season 3 be about?
Since Demon Slayer Season 3 is a while away, this plot is still speculation based on the Manga series and previous seasons that have premiered. However, we know this season will cover the Swordsmith Village arc of the series, which was confirmed through their official Twitter account.
After a little more research and without giving away too many spoilers, the Swordsmith Village arc will cover chapters 100-127 of the manga series. Those well-versed in the manga probably have a fair idea of what to expect from the upcoming season.
If the series’ creators heavily rely on the manga, which would be wise, the series will feature the Swordsmith Village and Tanjiro’s journey to this village to obtain a specific ancient weapon. However, it will be more complex than it seems.
So far, this is all we can gauge about the plot regarding Demon Slayer Season 3, but we hope there will be more to learn about in the future.
